[200q20v] How to access the door lock?

Well last Saturday I tried to fix the door lock on my 91 200q avant,
my confidence having been bolstered by experience gained on my 86 5kcstq,
of which the front door panel I could remove and put back in 15 minutes.

One hour later all I managed was to have removed exactly THREE phillips
screws and have "allegedly" loosened three allen screws in the armrest.
The inner panel remained attached to the door, firmly as ever.  At that
time the rain started coming down, and I scrambled to put everything
back.  And that was that.

Either the pertinent info was too well hidden in the Bentley or I am
just too dumb to understand it - perhaps both, actually.  Specifically,
I consulted Bentley manual volume two:
  sections 57.xx on Body - Front Doors and
  sections 70.1-70.7 on Trim - Interior (on front doors)

So here are my questions:
(1) I DO have to remove the inner door panels to gain access to the locks,
    don't I?
(2) If the answer is YES to (1), then which sections of Bentley have the
    real instructions on how to do it (removing inside door panels)?

Any other pointers and tips?
